Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Requesting specific type of recommendation

This is an odd one, but you guys just might be up to it ...

I mostly listen to music on-the-go these days: commuting by bus and subway, long bike rides (and yes I do have proper headphones for that), etc., and I like to put the mp3 player on shuffle, so I LOVE my old Taper's Section mp3's from Dead-dot-net because David often put up a large block of music in a single file - especially for the second and third set jams.

The latest version of yesterday's TDIH for 1976 is a great example of what I'm looking for - check out track 15, which is almost 30 minutes instead of being broken into four tracks:

So, can anyone recommend shows here on the archive that have long, multi-song tracks in them? All those 50-60 second "jam" and "tease" tracks are really unsatisfying when that's all you get ...

Thanks in advance ...

This might fit the bill - from 'Truckin' to the end of the set, 11 tracks including 3 excursions into 'The Other One'if you can save them as one track.

I appreciate your answer - love that set - but your answer implies that I may be asking the wrong question. It appears I may need to learn how to save multiple tracks as a single track, which of course is not something we'll discuss here ... I'll poke around on that score; I'm open to any solution that does not involve RealPlayer.

People also keep telling me that you can "link" tracks in itunes, so that they will always play back together, even in shuffle, which would get me the results I want, but I have never been able to figure out how to do it.

I've never understood why China Cat and I know You Rider, Scarlet and Fire, etc. are almost always broken up into separate tracks, when they naturally belong together, but it's such a minor quibble in the face of all this magnificent music that I've never brought it up before ...

Thanks.

If you download Foobar 2000, a free program that plays and decodes flac files you can turn the whole show into a single file if you desire, or whatever you like. It is very easy to use and you can even get a plug in for shn files. Just import the files into Foobar, high light them, right click, and choose "convert to single file." You will then have one long gapless wav file of however many tracks you selected that you can convert to mp3 or whatever and import into iTunes.

Dammit, Fenario80. That never bothered me till now!!
And now I can't stop thinking about it---conjoined songs ripped asunder---UGGGHH!!

BUT, you do bring up a great question: how does one link tracks on an ipod?

TOOTMO

Your humor would be a lot more effective if it were funny.

Hey thanks - I will spend some more time with that search later, but a quick scan of the results seems to confirm that you can easily join tracks when importing from a CD, but maybe never again after that. Some people even recommend burning to CD then reimporting, but that mp3>wav>mp3 seems too lossy, even for me. Do appreciate the help, though.

You want to "join" files, which I've only done with mp4, but this guy wants to help:

Thanks, Spaced - that is exactly what I am looking for - it's way more complicated than I wanted it to be but it looks like it would work.
